Republican Rep. Patrick McHenry (N.C.), now the chairman of the House Financial Services Committee, announced earlier this month that there would be six subcommittees, all of which will count advancing “diversity and inclusion” as one of their top priorities, according to the committee’s announcement.
The Subcommittee on Capital Markets, led by Republican Ann Wagner of Missouri, for example, will identify “best practices and policies that continue to strengthen diversity and inclusion in the capital markets industry.”
And the Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations, led by Republican Bill Huizenga of Michigan, is tasked with making sure there is “agency and programmatic commitment to diversity and inclusion policies.”
Diversity and inclusion, two pillars of the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion triumvirate commonly referred to as DEI, have become an obsession for Democrats and left-wing activists in recent years.
